Our guest is a NYC guy all the way through. We claim him in the BX, but he's resided in multiple boroughs and has made a mark everywhere he's set foot. Hanging with older crowds, he fell into the game of basketball and with the help of the "older heads" was put on the path to basketball success.
His climb up the hoops ladder landed him at St. Raymond H.S. and into the Raven family. There he quickly formed bonds with his newfound band of brothers and nurtured an adversarial relationship with coach Gary DeCesare. He developed his game and leadership abilities and was able to take them on a multi-stop college tour that culminated in him earning his college degree at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. From there he leapt into a coaching career spanning nearly a decade, across several men's programs around the NCAA.
After serving time, as a consequence of an FBI investigation into the NCAA, Book chose Dribble N' Dimes as his first public opportunity to speak since becoming a newly free man. He sits with Manny Digital to walk through his past and share what's in store in his new future with the Gauchos.
Listen to the story of Emmanuel "Book" Richardson with special guest Erin Richardson on this episode of Dribble N' Dimes.
